Dr kavolus did my total knee surgery on left knee 2 years ago. Now Im setting yup appointment for him to do my right knee. He is a great surgeon. I would not let any one else do my surgery.

I highly recommend that everyone seeing Dr. Kavolus run in another direction as fast as you can. He did my knee replacement 1 year ago and now refuses to ever see me again. MY Knee is now worse than before surgery. Why! because he chooses to use Stryker replacement parts which the FDA took...more
